Guessing that might be air conditioner running? When my ac is running, I've always gotten significantly lower mileage (around 25-27 city/33-35 hwy). Also found that over 80 mph, starts to eat fuel faster. My top hwy mileage always seemed to be running in the 72-75 mph range.

No kidding - only regret is I settled for the SE instead of the SE-R.....but not sure the R would've gone as far ;)

I don't think so either, more problems with the SER than the Sentra and both are low mileage, about the same, 105 K and 110 K
But more smiles per mile with the SER :)

Pure city, I get about around 31-32MPG. Highway I get around 40MPG, sometimes a bit higher, sometimes a bit lower depending on how fast I go and how gentle I am with the gas usage. I have 97 GXE with 5M. And I don't often use the A/C around the SF Bay area.

Also, my low fuel gauge starts to flicker and turn on when I get to around 2.5-3 gallons left in the tank which is good when the Sentra gets such good gas mileage. My other car low fuel light turns on around 3 gallons left and it only gets 16-17 in town and about 20-21 highway. Find fuel now light more like it.
